Happy Customer Photos – February

Time for a look at some more of your cute photos featuring my products. It’s a short month so not too many for February but they are all great!


Sally always shares the most colourful pins and it was lovely to see my original Mt Fuji pin in this red group. Makers are all tagged – click through if you can’t see them.

Is it cheating to include a photo from your sister of pins you sent her for free? I don’t care if it is as my Apple and Mt Fuji Hugs pins look so cute together.

I sell a lot of stickers but rarely see them in photos. Kim used her Little Ghost sticker from the surprise pack to decorate her sketchbook. I don’t have these in stock but you can get them from October31st.

And finally, Yasmin tweeted me this photo of my Seasonal Fruit & Veg postcards on her fridge. Love that lobster!

Seeing your photos honestly makes my day so please share yours with me – just tag @marcelinesmith on Instagram, share on my Facebook page, or leave a photo with your order feedback using the Etsy app.
